ZaReason: An Amazing Attack of Linux Cluefulness

Filed under
Software

Genuine cluefulness in any business is a rare pleasure, and that is why I like ZaReason so much. ZaReason sells Linux boxes: desktop, server, netbook, and pretty much whatever you want, just ask. I first "met" Cathy Malmrose, the CEO of ZaReason, on the Linuxchix mailing lists, but her business didn't really grab my attention until I heard about their Ubuntu keyboard.

This is one of those little bits of clue that set a business apart from the mediocre herd-- I don't want the Windows logo on my computers, nor do a lot of Linux users. ZaReason contracted with a keyboard manufacturer for an Ubuntu logo key instead of a Windows key. They also sell a Tux logo keyboard. One of those little things that is really a big thing.

Valerie Aurora Webcam mod

Another priceless bit of cluefulness is the Valerie Aurora Webcam mod option. Val is a kernel hacker of great brains and renown. She does not trust built-in Webcams to be safe from remote exploits and knows several ways they can be turned into remote spycams. So she created a custom security patch, and generously allows ZaReason to include it as a no-cost option.

Glad to see they're worried about the "important" stuff.
